I was able to resolve this issue by 
1. renaming ~/.local/share/akonadi/search_db and forcing akonadi to rebuild a search index, and
2. renaming ~/.local/share/baloo (which contained 7.7 GB data).
The search bow is now working as expected; however, if I rename the folder back to ~/.local/share/baloo, I can reproduce the crash :).

Sometimes you just need to be lucky ;). I am just posting this hoping that it may help somebody else in the future. I will also post it as a comment to the bug report I created.
